The Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems (CFE) conducts research in the following areas to assist in the management of freshwater resources for beneficial ecological outcomes:
Two PhD research assistantships are available at Tennessee Tech University to study nutrient cycling and water quality improvement within agricultural wetlands. This work is part of a large multi-university and interdisciplinary project assessing the structural and functional recovery of wetlands transitioning from agricultural fields. Study sites are located across Tennessee and Kentucky. This research will focus on nitrogen and phosphorus cycling at scales from core incubations to whole wetland measurements.
The Walker Lab at Middle Tennessee State University is currently seeking a Ph.D. student to advance research on a project focused on the assessment of whether restoration, implemented through the wetland restoration program, enhances essential wetland functions in the lower Mississippi River Basin States. Wetland microbial communities regulate nutrient removal and sequestration (Scholz and Lee 2005).
The Walker Lab at Middle Tennessee State University is currently seeking a MSc student to advance research on a project focused on characterizing the endangered duskytail darter nest/mussel microbiome community and its tentative function to gain an understanding of its role in innate immunity.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 4 is seeking a qualified Master’s or Doctoral Degree recipient to assist the Ocean, Wetlands and Streams Protection Branch with compilation and analysis of a wetland and stream reference condition database with which efforts to restore these resources may be effectively assessed.
